  1. Citavi Plugin

    A Plugin to see which project is opened in Citavi would be nice. Currently I have multiple projects there and can only track that through the application timeline where i cant tell the projects apart.

  2. Tagging moments of time (milestones)

    ManicTime does great job while tagging and logging time periods. It is also necessary to tag and log certain moments of time. That would be for example equivalent of reaching milestones in projects or moments of starting certain things. That would allow not only tracking used net working time but also tracking lead times which might be at times even more important than actual time spent.

  3. Comparing Estimated time with actual time

    Estimated time for a project/task is often different from the actual time spent. It would be great if there's a feature that showed the difference

  4. Hit "play" on a previous tagged entry to start timer again

    After working on Task A, you switch to Task B and create the new tags. Then, when you want to switch back to Task A, it would be nice if you could just right click on the previous block of time (or select from the drop down in the corner) to start the timer again for Task A. Instead of having to retype in the popup (just takes more time).

  5. Please add ctrl+A screenshot to select entire day in timeline

    Once I finished tracking all periods in a day, I like to select all the rest and assign a generic non-billable task, so I know that the entire day is accounted for. This would make that task much faster.

  6. Please focus "Tags" input after click on "Tag last untagged time"

    Maybe a Bug or missing Feature.
    Using "Tag last untagged time" as described on
    https://manictime.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/686274-tag-last-untagged-time

    on Windows 10.
    The Cursor blinks on the "Tags" input field, but typing do NOT appear there.
    Have to click it with the mouse first, then typing works.

    Hint: using a shortcut to open the "Tag last untagged time" works better, typing is possible without mouseclick.

  7. show daily net hours on top bar

    The top bar shows "day start", "day end" , "duration" on the right. It would be great to see "active" duration also to see, the active hours without checking the statistics tab

  9. Shortcut for "back"

    I think a "back" shortcode / button would be really helpful. This way I could quickly undo any wrongly made changes. I couldn't find one yet because ctrl + z doesn't work?

  10. Add export option 'All timelines' instead of each timeline seperately

    By clicking [settings-symbol] -> 'Import,Export' it is very easy to export all data recorded. However you get 4 seperate files.

    There are multiple options to export data to xlsx or csv, but none of them puts the label, usage-, program- and document information next to each other in columns (just like the main screen of Manic time has these timelines above each other).The easiest way I have found to do this is to export each timeline (4 options: labels, somputer usage, programs and documents) seperately and put them together in Excel, but that is quite an exercise.

    If the file…

  12. Autotag to cloud or automatic copy of autotags to tags

    There are similar ideas for desktop statistics, but let me explain a workflow we are using with Cloud version.

    First of all, we went with Manic Time because for our use case it almost works automatically. Also our Manic Time use is based on trust.

    So we have a first rule that if you do something personal, you stop Manic Time.

    We also have a rule for work browser and personal browser (which we have excluded from tracking) because these days you "have to" do some personal browsing through out the day.

    Then we have a set of apps that…

  14. You need a much better way to deal with conflicts in autotags

    Conflicts in autotags are taking me forever. There are so many of them. You need a feature that detects them and that has some form of wizard that will scroll through them all and just ask the user to select which is the tag they want most, either on a day basis or by project, or some other way.

  15. Automatic prompt for call notes

    For the add in call log on Android, it would be nice to be prompted in some way to enter notes about the call which can make it easier to recall events and subjects when tagging later

  16. Improve to save new edited tags

    When I edit new tag, and key in esc, the edit window is closed and the typed text is gone. In this case please ask to save or forgett the text. Another tip is save text in between with key ctrl-S, not only with OK button.

  17. A way to enlarge the tooltip hover screenshots

    They are too small to be useful, and using the F12 function works but it requires me to adjust the divider to make it large enough to view anyway. Just having a much larger hover screenshot would work perfectly!!

  18. screenshots from other computers

    I can add different timelines from different computers of mine, using the same login on a ManicTime server.
    It would be great if it could download the screenshots from the ManicTime server so I can't have to open up the web interface to see screenshots (which I can't even view full screen of.

  19. Customise export formatting

    Customise how ManicTime can export time entries (or timesheets), by being able to add fields and separators.

    For example, to export time into Carpe Diem Web, the format required is: Tags and narrations in double-quotation marks, and time in decimal hours shown with the word "hour" after.

    In this case, the ManicTime user could go into ManicTime's Settings, and set up the formatting for exporting to the clipboard as:

    Time (decimal)
    Text: " hour ""
    Tag1
    Text: " "
    Notes
    Text """

    ManicTime users who use other similar time-entry software can customise their export options to suite their system.

  20. replace tags

    My workflow is to search for keywords. Sometimes the keywords get tagged with the wrong tag, which I notice when doing a different search. I then need to "delete" tags, and re-tag everything in the search with a different tag. It would be great if instead of "Add tag..." I could "Add and Replace tag..."
